The Official Gazette of 11.20.2013 ran the Ordinance of the Ministry of Finance no. 545 of November 18, 2013, which repealed paragraphs 1 and 2 of Article 62-A of the Bylaws of the Board of Tax Appeals (CARF).

In this sense, there is no more provisions predicting suspension of judgment of the administrative processes underway in CARF, while the Supreme Court ("STF") did not complete the assessment of process with constitutional matters that impact the decision of CARF, in view of the systematic of the General Repercussion (Article 543-B of the Legal Procedure Code – CPC).
